Nancy asks…

I m coming on KL airport at 7.10Am and want to take penang flight around 10.35am?

Can i make it??? Do i need to change the airport??? I m cmoing through MH and also taking MH flights for penang.

Penang Local Boy answers:

Well, you have not provided enough details.

Penang also has an International airport, so check with Malaysia airlines when you check in for your flight to KL whether it is a check thro flight where by you do not have to collect your luggage at KL or clear Immigration unless you go out of the transit hall…You do all these at Penang. If light times are kept, you have plenty of time. If you need to collect your luggage and clear custom, you need time to be at the check-in counter for your Penang flight not later than 8.35 (officially) so you have a lead time of at least 45 minutes depending on how fast you can retrieve your bags and clear customs….to get there.

Sandra asks…

What is the best way to get from Penang Intl Airport to Bukit Kayu Hitam?

I will be making the trip on a Sunday. Thanks
I would prefer public transportation as i will be backpacking.

Penang Local Boy answers:

Rent a car at PEN airport, then drive all the way to BKH using North South Highway [PLUShighway route E1 north bound]

OK, for back packers:
take a cab/airport limo and say “jetty” to the driver. Once reached the jetty, take a ferry ride to butterworth (on the mainland), then you’ll reach a temporary bus terminal. There you have 2 choices – take a cab all the way to BKH [quite expensive] or to take a bus [TransNasional express bus] to AlorStar. From AlorStar, take a cab [i don't think there's an express bus service to BKH] to BKH

Good luck and keep asking people on the street if you’re not sure
